I wish that I could rate this book twice. The first half of the book describes Dr. Farmer's childhood, the life choices he made and the strongly held beliefs that have guided him in his service to the poor. This first half gets 5 out of 5 stars.
The second half is a current view of Dr. Farmer's day to day schedule. The writer follows Dr. Farmer as he travels between clinics in Central America, Peru, Russia and elswhere while engaging the Doctor in philosophical arguments about healthcare funding and politics. This second half gets 4 out of 5 stars.

Since becoming a member of Audible over a year and a half ago, I can say without reservation that this is the best, most compelling, and most inspiring book I've read. The narration is stellar, a must for my Audible choices. But the story itself draws you in, and you can't stop reading as you follow the humble beginnings of Partners in Health, its unique founder, Dr. Paul Farmer, and the impact a small group of highly-movtivated and committed individuals has made on world health. There are many miles to go yet in the journey of Partners in Health. By reading this book, you will want to join them.
